WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Claire McCaskill has won re-election in Missouri, holding off Rep. Todd Akin who came under fire for saying women had ways of preventing pregnancies in the case of "legitimate rape."

McCaskill's victory denies Republicans a seat they'd hoped to pick up before Akin's comments.

Democrats have picked up two Senate seats from the Republicans — Elizabeth Warren in Massachusetts and Joe Donnelly in Indiana — while the GOP has lost three seats, including to an independent in Maine.

As of 10:45 p.m. Eastern time, Democrats had locked up 45 seats, Republicans 42, including 67 seats not up for election. Democrats now hold a 53-seat majority, including two independents who align with them.

  1. Congratulations to Claire McCaskill on her WIN!!!

    Akin is scum and he should be under a jail for rape because it’s obvious he’s a rapist as he thinks rape is ok. These sick-minded old boy types are dying out and Romney’s loss is proof that diversity rules in this country in this day and age. Akin if you’re listening, RAPE IS NEVER ALRIGHT, IT IS A CRIME.
